The X3 seems to make more sense. Now just need to find a reasonably priced and very short optical cable. 

Tell me if you find one. I've been looking for one too.

Aside from the somewhat fave ADA4627 op amp, what other op amp would be interesting to get that isn't a close clone of the ADA4627? Just curious for op amp rolling.

I honestly don't get the COAX port either. It just makes the amp more bulky. Most audiophile things have optical, and you can buy a converter to convert coax into optical too! But I guess Nick was trying to be nice to everyone that might need coax connection.

Well, tonight I tried to connect one of my HDTV's optical OUT to the Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII optical IN and could not get it to work. I switched the TV's audio signal to "External" vs. "TV Speakers," but there was no sound through the Leckerton's attached headphones. I then tried the optical OUT from the set-top-box and that didn't work either. Hmmm...

Hmm. No idea what's wrong. I want to try doing that myself, but I don't have an optical cable, so I can't do that right now.

Not sure what you call reasonable, but there's this.  I recommend the armored for portable use.

 

Otherwise, you'll probably have to contend with a regular toslink cable and a micro adapter.

 

EDIT:  Van Damme makes a 0.25m toslink FO cable, but you have to order it from the UK, AFAIK.

Hmm. $60 for 20inches... let me think about it.

I hear that's the going rate in Chelsea. Seems pretty reasonable to me.

Good thing you're on head-fi because if you had posted that statement anywhere else you'd be getting flamed by pervs nonstop for the next month.

False alarm! I tried the same connection on a different HDTV using the attached soundbar's optical cable. It worked great! Clearly, there must be something wrong with other HDTV's optical port or the cable I used.

How is the SQ on tv?

Once I detected that it worked, I disconnected and didn't listen long enough to develop any impressions. For the few seconds that I had the headphones on, it sounded clear, but the channel was set to a morning "talk" show, which would not be the best test for SQ. I'll try again when I have more time and report the results.

Ok. Thanks!

It appears that the only UK website that has the 0.25 m Toslink cable in stock is the London based Van Damme company (VDC) itself.  The automatic purchase checkout process didn't work for me for whatever reason (USA, no business account...), so I had to resort to personal contact.  The trading company business credit application form that they sent back to me to complete reminded me of the Vogons in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  smile.gif   Actually, the contact lady turned out ot be very easy to work with.
